Forum rules
1) Please search before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one.

3) Please post separately for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator (right now, that's me, Dragonbones) asking for help. Happy posting!

Tried City Super? They have a lot of imported packaged desserts.

I seem to recall seeing it somewhere, either at a DIY baking shop, Jason's, or one of the Tianmu shops (Wellman's or Willie's Deli).Can't confirm it, though.

As far as I remember I bought it in Jasons, could have been Carrefour in Neihu though.

Another option, assuming this is the type of custard you are looking for, http://www.pcstore.com.tw/homebakery/M11162562.htm

That's the package I saw in a store, for sure.

I just saw some custard powder today in the Danshui Carrefour, in the foreign foods aisle. If it's available at that Carrefour it's probably also available in the Tianmu branch.
